If you have always wondered what the whole fuss about eating healthy is all about, you should definitely read on!

Let's start with what

'eating healthy'

really is. Well, it is pretty simple. It just means eating the foods that give your body the nutrients it needs to grow strong and healthy while going slow on the foods that don't do your body any good. No matter how tasty they are!

If you eat healthy food, your body gets all the proteins, carbohydrates, fats, minerals and nutrients it needs to grow and you remain fit and active.

Junk food like chips, biscuits and colas on the other hand, give no nourishment or energy to your body and leave you feeling tired and bored. So go healthy! You would not want to lose out on the fun things like playing your favourite game, enjoying with your friends, getting brilliant scores on your tests, would you?

Become the new trendsetter. While your friends stuff themselves with chips, candies and colas, be the one that shows them how eating healthy can be pretty cool too! It's definitely worth it!
